  • 2022 Summer Bridge Program

    Incoming 9th grade students: 

    Dear Parents and Guardians:

    We would like to take this opportunity to warmly welcome you and your child to the P-TECH family!

    One of the first opportunities we provide for P-TECH students is a program called Summer Bridge. The goal of the program is to transition and orient incoming students to our school and staff as well as provide them with a literacy foundation for the upcoming year of classes. We strongly encourage all incoming freshmen to take advantage of this exciting orientation opportunity.

    This year’s Summer Bridge Program kicks off with an orientation meeting with their teachers on Tuesday, July 5, 2022, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Students will take ELA and Algebra (or Geometry as necessary) classes throughout the summer. Students will also take workshops related to academic and professional development.  Sessions will occur every Monday through Thursday at the same time until August 11, 2022. Please be advised of the following:

    • Please register for the 2022 Summer Bridge Program here or at the link you received via email. If you have not received the registration link, please email PTECH administration at Freshman2022@ptechnyc.org.
    • Our student/parent orientation will be held on July 5, 2022 at PTECH: 150 Albany Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11213 at 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m
    • Upon arrival at Summer Bridge on 7/5/22, please provide any regents exam or HS course credit documentation (ie: transcript) from your former school so that we may program you appropriately.

    COVID Update for Families 

    • Weekly testing. Starting Monday, September 27, the DOE will increase random COVID-19 testing in all elementary, middle, and high schools for students in grades 1-12 from biweekly to weekly. We can only test students whose parents have provided an updated testing consent form to their school. You are encouraged to provide this consent for your child if you have not done so. If you have already submitted a testing consent form for the 2021-22 school year, that consent form remains in effect. If you have not yet submitted your consent, you can do so one of two ways:
    • Updated quarantine policy. Also starting Monday, September 27, in accordance with the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we will no longer close an entire classroom when there is a positive case in the classroom. Unvaccinated students who are masked and at least three feet distanced from a student who tests positive are not considered close contacts under CDC guidelines and will not have to quarantine. This new policy applies to all students in any grade.

    Please fill out concent forms using the following link.

  • More Media Attention

    Posted by Will Ehrenfeld on 9/27/2011
    In the past few days, Mayor Bloomberg has promoted P-TECH multiple times as part of the Education Nation summit, hosted by NBC in New York City. We'll post the video when it's available, but for now, read the article, and the text of his remarks is below.
     

    “Last year, I also talked about how we would form some new partnerships with businesses, nonprofits, and universities to more directly connect our students to colleges and careers — and we have done that. One great example I wanted to share with you is what we call P-Tech, the new Pathways in Technology High School that we created jointly with I.B.M. and the City University of New York, which opened its doors this year. This groundbreaking public school runs from grade 9 to grade 14. You may have noticed two extra grades in there, and that’s because students at P-Tech will learn the traditional core subjects, and also receive an education in computer science and complete two years of college work. When they graduate from grade 14 with an Associate’s Degree and a qualified record, they will be first in line for jobs with I.B.M., something that is really important in this day and age to all our kids.

    “The students at P-Tech will also help us further another of our long-term goals: to diversify our local economy by supporting industries that have the potential to grow and expand here."
